The FARO Laser Tracker is a portable, computerized measurement device that creates a 3-D “blueprint” of large objects and parts up to 230 feet in size. As the user guides a mirrored target over the object’s entire surface, the Tracker emits a laser beam that is reflected back from the target, allowing the system’s laptop computer to simultaneously draw and record all of its 3-D measurements. The Tracker can also take automatic measurements by steering the laser to multiple targets positioned on the object. Engineers and designers use the data to reverse-engineer, improve or create new parts and products – or improve how they’re made. Quality control personnel use it to verify that the parts have been made correctly, and, if not, where they need to be corrected. The FARO Tracker’s portability and advanced technology allow users to increase production efficiency while decreasing time-to-market, scrap, and re-work costs by measuring on the production shop floor, design room, or anywhere it’s convenient.
